Celebrate Youth Entrepreneurship

Each spring University School hosts a free day-long event that brings together nearly 1,000 middle school and high school students from across Northeast Ohio. A nationally recognized young entrepreneur presents to students in the daytime and to the general public at night. A Young Entrepreneur Market is held following the public evening program, where student entrepreneurs sell their creations. Celebrate Youth Entrepreneurship at University School is made possible through the generous support of Burton D. Morgan Foundation.
